The messages of allegiance comes on the heels of the ITF's findings which suggest the athlete didn't intentionally break any rules when she failed a drug test back in March; Ms. Sharapova has also come forward to say that she plans to appeal the harsh sentence.
Given the evidence and Maria's public apologies, Nike released the following statement in support of the star:

On Monday, Maria Sharapova admitted to failing a drug test during this year's Australian Open.
Despite explaining that she's been taking Meldonium — a non FDA-approved drug — for 10 years for health issues, Maria was still "provisionally suspended" starting on March 12 by the International Tennis Federation.
Well there's more bad news for the blonde beauty as Nike, Porsche, and TAG Huer are all distancing themselves from the athlete in light of the findings.

Talk about a step in the right direction!

Do U think Nike is serious about coming out as pro-LGBT??
